Mentoring Opportunities

days since last accident 181

Looking for ways to volunteer? For some individuals and organizations, this can be as simple as registering your existing and ongoing programs so that these mentoring hours are captured. Many of our partner organizations are looking for interested individuals to mentor young people, fellow members, interested individuals and industry colleagues.

Click the links below to find ways to volunteer your time with these A Call to Arts partners, then log your hours here

Also, we encourage you to register via the White House CNCS’ website at serve.gov/acalltoarts, where you will be connected to schools and community organizations that have expressed interest in creative arts mentoring as a pathway to opportunity, particularly for underserved youth. Then return to this site to log your mentor hours!
